    What is the most " Rare" of the Colt Factory Stocks

    As a collector of Stocks I was just curious as to what you would think is the some of the hardest to find.... and seldom seen Colt Stocks? Here is one of mine. FLEUR-DI-LIS GRIPS for the "E" Frame revolver. Center pair in the photo.

    This is actually something that I’ve been thinking about recently. I’m sure someone more qualified can answer your question on rarity better than me. I mentioned in another thread that although lots of people seem to like the deep set medallions I think my favorites stocks are the ones that have the flush medallions forward facing on both sides. I’m pretty sure this has been discussed here before. As far as I know they were only made that way for less than a year ca.1924 during the transition from hard rubber to walnut. Here’s our 1924 Police Positive Target in 32 New Police

    May not be the scarcest but I certainly don’t see them often.
    While we’re on the subject I’ll also say that I don’t understand where the name Fleur-de-lis comes from for the fancy ones you show. Isn’t this a Fleur-de-lis?

    Lastly I’d like to know what models the stocks on top and bottom in the OP’s picture originally came on. I see them occasionally but can’t figure it out. All three are great by the way in my opinion.

    I would think the checked stocks for the 1909 U.S.M.C. model would place high on the list.

    Cam has a pair of multicolored Coltwood stocks. I've never see another set.

    Just realized we have an 1914 Officers Model 38 with the type of stocks I was asking about. Was this style made for D-frames also?

    I have a nice set of Model 1905 USMC grips. I would think they're pretty rare.

    Here they are:





    These are seldom encountered on the Pocket Positive:







    Here is another in nickel:




    This gun came from the Archive Department at Colt with these stocks. It's the only Police Positive Special in .25-20 that Colt made.

    I agree as they were made exclusively for this gun and only 1300 guns were produced.

    Cam, are those multi colored grips factory original? If so any info on them? They don’t look like anything colt would have done back then during that time frame of those Medallions but I see stuff quite often I didn’t know existed. Hope I continue too .
